Hans Kelsen and Max Weber: Convergences and Divergences in Conceptions of the Juridico-Political
10th-13th July 2012, Department of Law and Criminology, Edge Hill University, Ormskirk, Lancashire, UK
This interdisciplinary, mini-Conference represents the first sustained examination of the relationship between Hans Kelsen and Max Weber’s work in the UK. The examination will centre upon the concept of the juridico-political, and will be structured by three main paths of reflection: Kelsen, Weber and Neo-Kantianism (path I); Kelsen/Freud and Weber/Nietzsche (path II); and the theories of Kelsen and Weber as interventions within the modern juridico-political system (path III). The Conference papers will be given by a mixture of European and North American experts on the work of Kelsen and Weber.
This mini-conference will primarily be of interest to UK academics whose research relates to the fields of legal theory, sociology, philosophy and social and political theory.
Organisers: Peter Langford (Department of Law and Criminology, Edge Hill University), Ian Bryan (School of Law, Lancaster University) and John McGarry (Department of Law and Criminology, Edge Hill University)
